I realize wheels can also be a performance mod, but because they look so nice, I thought I would start the thread here. Post up pictures of your cars with aftermarket wheels. OR wheels that you would like to put on your car. I'm interested in finding out if people like chrome wheels better than painted, or if it's all about performance. Tell me why you like the wheels you do. Right now I like the CCW 505a's as they look like a very nice 5 spoke that is not just the newest fad and should look good for a long time.

I am the very same I have been upgrading and changing things nonstop and the pile of new parts I have in the warehouse for spring is getting out of control, but I really like some of the moldings you have added and the silver marker lights, with the rims WOW!

Tomorrow I will post a picture of my work in progress for you

Here are a few more pictures of the mods I did at the end of the 08 season.
MCM carbon fiber hood with custom paint by Corrado &
Specter Werks rear fascia.









I have almost got all the parts for the engine build. Hopefully in about 2 -3 weeks I can start the tear down and build .

I almost made a mess in my pants with the mention of the MCM Hood. I really want one of those hoods (to be added to my car somewhere between 2009 and 2020:D). I think they are a great hood that perfectly balance form and function.

You'll be the first, or probably second person I call when my student loans are paid off. That should be in about 10 years or so.:(

:eek: Holy Crap, where did you go to school? Princeton?
Still at the University of Saskatchewan. Not working for 5 years and paying for school has a way of putting you into the hole. Oddly enough, the Vette only accounts for $4,000 of my dept and as it gets the best mileage of any vehicle I own, it saves me money as I drive:D. What wheels do you have on your car? Do you have other photos?

Pics

I said I would put up pics then got busy and forgot, so here are a couple.

I have new drilled slotted rotors to put on, chrome tips, and plate for exhaust, lambo door kit , and some other smaller items still to put on this spring.

A true work in progress,

Brent

The second one was some exploratory surgery we did in preparation for the Lambo doors.

The first was taken at the cabin.

Thanks, I have a vision of what I want it to look like and it is getting there, but it takes time and money, then i see yours and get a whole new crop of ideas....

We will see what happens,

Brent

That looks great! 345's in the back? That is awesome, how big of a shoe horn did you use to get those to fit? I love the hood.
